Problem

Government resistance to institutional change

Other Names:
Government reluctance to transform administrative structures
Nature:
The general response of government to the speed and scale of global changes has been a reluctance to recognize sufficiently the need to change themselves. The environmental and developmental challenges are interdependent and integrated, requiring comprehensive approaches and popular participation. These requirements are difficult for national and international institutions that have been established on the basis of narrow preoccupations and compartmentalized concerns.
